DIY Rear wheel Jack

Not really a modification but, here's a cheap, easily made Jack to lift your rear wheel.

I agree with Ed. Hobbit crutches are hard to come by.

Nice job !

Looks like it very easy to actuate

I would just put some sort of retainer on the frame slider so if Murphy was to show up, the stand would keep attached and you would run less of a chance to scratch that beautifull swingarm

a loop of paracord over the spool would probably be enough

As long as you don't require the "RING" along w/ the Hobbit-crutch, EASY-PEASY...!



Also - helps if you can "live w/out" Baggin's crutch....
